La Forest has the reputation as being the most sought after of Dauvissat's Premier Cru bottlings, and the 2018 is a perfect example why that is the case. This utterly brilliant Chablis is already striking at this young age, displaying incredibly perfumed aromatics of lemon oil, green pear, white florals and oyster shells, all backed by a gorgeous stony minerality character. On the palate this is beautifully textured and displays remarkable overall purity and precision, with a mineral-laced core that is underlined by the perfect touch of acidity. It continues to display outstanding overall balance through the focused finish. This is an absolutely exceptional release of 'La Forest' that is nothing short of stunning today, yet should also age marvelously for quite some time.
